Episode 55 - TAPS (part 2)

October 11, 2021

As Bart & I conclude our review of TAPS, we realise how much of a bummer this film is! Turns out a film about fanatical youths caught up in the military industrial complex isn't a total hoot. Who knew? Join us as we discuss Toms ripped bod (again), what on earth the National Guard is & how few uniforms they seem to have, psychological warfare & how Scientology made Tom Cruise's voice better.

September 28, 2021

There aren't many Tom Cruise films that have been lost to the ages but TAPS seems to be one of the rare ones that very few people are aware of. I am joined by Bart to discuss this film about a military school & its fanatical students trying to save it from closure. Join us as we discuss rhythmic gun-nastics, the many outfit changes (including an abundance of sashes), children having access to guns & mortars, Sex & the City and war crimes aplenty!

Minisode 23 - More Tom Cruise Trivia (but mostly about actors who aren‘t Tom Cruise)

Minisode 23 - More Tom Cruise Trivia (but mostly about actors who aren‘t Tom Cruise)

September 6, 2021

Phoebe is back to share some fun Tom Cruise trivia with me & we get a little bit manic (like, I can barely string my sentences together, oops lol). Join us as we pay out on Robert Downey Jr, Fast & the Furious 9, Tenet, Christopher Nolan & Idris Elba's poor film role choices. We also discuss what we'd let Disney do with our likenesses after we die, how Black Widow really did come out a year too late, Tom Hardy's hilarious accents & like a few Tom Cruise stories peppered throughout.

Episode 53 - American Made (part 2)

August 31, 2021

Phoebe & I wrap up our review of American Made by making fun of it & the director Doug Liman a bunch. We also cover the complete lack of vice in a film that's literally about smuggling drugs into the US during the 80s, shoehorning in references to US presidents for no good reason, how poorly the women fare in this story & how Tom Cruise is a big neat freak.

I've talked a lot about how Tom Cruise almost exclusively picks action movies to star in these days but there has been one exception; this movie! I am joined by Phoebe to discuss how little we actually know about 80s North/Central American history, how much we dislike seeing Tom doing sex scenes, Hollywood versions of true stories, plus we randomly (but justifiably) make fun of Matt Damon a lot!

August 2, 2021

In the 2nd half of my review with Ari, we cover the famous sword fighting scene & the big, final battle, fumbling out way through facts & history! Things also get emotional when we discuss perfect cherry blossoms & Ken Watanabe's beautiful eyes.

July 26, 2021

After a bit of a break, I'm back to review an absolute banger of a film with Ari! This film cops a lot of flack as people assume Tom Cruise is the titular last Samurai (hint: he's not) which is a bummer because it's really bloody good! Join us as we discuss which Samurai we're crushing on, watching Tom Cruise get a face full of mud, how fkd the patriarchy is & our extremely limited knowledge of famous battles.

A quick lil podcast update!

June 21, 2021

Just a quick update about the podcast & why there hasn't been a new episode for a little while. Basically, I'm still here & excited  to finish reviewing Tom Cruise's filmography but with so few films left to do, it's taking a little bit longer to organise recording new episodes!

 

I also divulge my plans for the podcast once I've gotten through his films!

Peter is back to finish off Tropic Thunder, a movie that could literally only exist in 2008. Join as we continue to mock Justin Theroux's writing credits, continually forget that jack Black was even in this film, shudder when they kick the ableism up another notch, debate which characters we're married to & discuss Tom Cruise's dancing abilities at length.
